Format: Paperback
I found this book to provide information with much clarity and in language that the real world can relate to, rather than the usual propoganda and scare tactics utilized to "keep people from indulging." The author is clearly aware that even if the entire world supply of any type of "recreational drug"were completely erradicated(and it never will be) there will ALWAYS be a demand - people have always "self-medicated" and there are no amount of laws/restrictions that will ever stop their desire to do so. That can only come from the person from within to decide to refrain from partaking in items that are not good for them. It's unfortunate that such information as provided in this book is so hard to find, as I truly think if more people had access to this objective and REAL information, it would be revolutionary in that people would in fact make the right decisions for their lifestyle, rather than "learning the hard way"(i.e., billions of people in prison, etc.)-which doesn't work anyway - that route only destroys otherwise productive lives and it certainly is not condusive to "rehabilitating" any body.

This is a very introductory book about heroin. It seeks to inform the novice, and explain the drug and its effects to someone who has no experience. I purchased this book for my mother. Her oldest grandson had just died of a heroin overdose. This book allowed her to feel more informed, ask more educated questions, and basically understand.........just a little.........of her deceased grandson's lifestyle. By no means is this a textbook on heroin, but it is a good and solid introduction. I would recommend this to someone who has no experience. I would not recommend this to anyone who does have experience with either the drug or the lifestyle.

It was a very fast read. I enjoyed the book. I did not agree totally with all the information given. I learned very little from the book.

Francis Moraes, The Little Book of Heroin (Ronin, 2006)

There was a disclaimer at the beginning of this book about it being for educational purposes only, and I figured the publishers were being paranoid and just going along with it. Then I got to Chapter 7, which is simply entitled "Scoring", and I just started laughing. I'd never heard of Ronin Press before, but now I've got a pretty good idea that they belong on the same shelf as the stuff I own from Amok, Loompanics, Feral House, and other such wonders of modern literature-- that is to say, stuff I enjoy reading, perhaps a bit too much, but in general don't take at all seriously.

If you're actually looking for information about heroin (in a less specific sense than, say, how to score), there is some stuff here that will probably help your research, though how much of it you've likely already read I'm not sure. The book does have a slightly polemic tone at times (though, I admit, not nearly as much as I'd suspected from the disclaimer), and, of course, you've got chapters on activities like scoring. But you may still find it of use, if you sift the wheat from the chaff carefully enough. ** ½
